Energy Company Plans to Frack a Volcano
With reports only recently confirming that fracking is not, as long as its properly regulated, the earthquake-generating terror we thought it was, a U.S. geothermal company has decided it’s a great idea to extract clean energy from a dormant volcano by hydrofracking its hot underbelly to generate steam.

AltaRock Energy and Davenport Newberry, the companies behind the $43 million plan, have been granted a permit to hydrofrack the hot rocks flanking the Newberry volcano in Oregon, where Davenport Newberry has secured federal leases on 62 square miles of land. This will involve injecting water into a series of cracks in the rocks at a high enough pressure that it reaches three kilometres beneath the surface, fracturing connected veins of rock to access the heat beneath and creating a series of connected geothermal reservoirs in the process. Water will be introduced to these reservoirs, where heat from the rocks will turn it to steam, which then turns turbines at surface-level to generate electricity.

Re: Energy Company Plans to Frack a Volcano
Excellent.
I've been thinking they should be doing this for years.
We should have tons of Geo-thermal plants wherever they are feasible.
The yellow stone caldera would be perfect for a enormous power plant.
You build it outside of the national park, but you build it enormous so that it can sent out to the rest of the country.
Wyoming is centrally located to send it out to the whole country.

Interesting, you think they would do it in yellowstone in wyoming like previous poster said. Lots of hot springs there.

No need, Energy From Waste (EFW) plants can do it while generating electricity, catching the toxic fumes and burying the solids, even injecting CO2 into absorbers!

Re: Energy Company Plans to Frack a Volcano
I am not sure how I feel about this. Fracking can lead to increased earthquake activity and I'm not sure it is a good idea to "poke a stick" at the Three Sisters. Not to mention they have found undersea volcanoes off the Oregon Coast. Seems like a small possibility of lighting up the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

Re: Energy Company Plans to Frack a Volcano
Any rational person would assume this is pure madness.

Break enough rocks and the Magma has an easy route to the surface. It's really that simple. The Magma is under pressure. Right now it's contained and at a status quo. Balanced. Not moving much, not going up or down. It may remain in that state for thousands of years. It is contained in a super-thick rock-thermos bottle - so to speak.

But along comes mankind in his vanity and greed for energy and cracks the very rock that is containing this molten rock the size of several lakes. The stuff, once released, is going to be forced upward onto the surface and out into the world we live in.

Surely there has to be a safer way to make steam than to risk this kind of explosion or worse.

Re: Energy Company Plans to Frack a Volcano
It was tried in Yellowstone. Look up the history of the park. It was stopped because it woke up a dormant hot spot. It was safe for years, then literally boom! New geyser. So, yeah, it CAN be safe...for awhile.
